Weight Loss Tips from a Registered Dietitian


  1. Distribute your calories throughout the day. Eat a larger breakfast and lunch, and a smaller dinner.
  2. Add some bran or extra fiber to your diet. Fiber slows the rise in blood glucose and therefore helps to extend the energy of the meal or snack.
  3. Combine a carbohydrate with a protein for your snacks. A piece of fruit (carbohydrate) will provide you with energy for only 1-2 hours. If you combine the piece of fruit with a piece of cheese (protein) you may stay satisfied for 3-4 hours – and you are less likely to snack on something less nutritious!
  4. Drink 1500-2000ml of water each day. Research shows that people who drink two cups of water before meals lose more weight.
